Learning and leisure
One of the great things about coming to RNC is the opportunity it provides for making new friends, developing your social confidence and having new experiences that support your personal development outside the classroom.
Within your weekly timetable, there are opportunities to engage in interests that are not central to your chosen courses. You may wish to try out a new sport, indulge in the arts or learn a new language.
You will be assigned a Pastoral Support Officer (PSO) who will work with you to make sure you are able to get involved in the social activities you enjoy.
Activities you can take part in can include:
Animal centre and farm visits
Arts, ceramics, drawing and printing
Crafts, knitting and jewellery making
Cooking and dining club
Duke of Edinburgh Award
French cooking – cooking French cuisine using French language
Hair and beauty club
Horticulture club – includes gardening, landscaping and garden management
Karaoke, live music and open mic nights
Language societies (Students also have the option to attend French and Spanish appreciation societies within Herefordshire, speaking with members of the public and practicing their language skills)
Outdoor activities: camping, bush craft, walking
Performing Arts: music, dance and drama
Radio production – plan, produce and present your own show
Tech novice café –working with the community to teach basic IT skills
Or... start your own club!
This is not the complete list of what RNC can offer so if there is a particular activity that you would like to do, speak to your PSO and they will try their best to help support you to make arrangements and get other students involved.
Please be aware that while the College will pay for as many activities as we can, participation in some activities will require an additional cost from the student. Detailed costs of any activities will be made clear when any trips are advertised on campus.
